BROOKLYN — Brooklyn-made candles, gelato, flowers and jewelry will be for sale across from the Barclays Center this weekend to showcase local products in the last few days before Christmas.
The Brooklyn-Made Holiday Pop-Up Market will be open Saturday and Sunday on the triangular island between Fourth, Flatbush and Atlantic avenues — directly across from the arena and Atlantic Terminal, organizers said.
Every product from the 16 vendors who will set up shop there — including Greenpoint-based Cafe Grumpy, Gowanus gelateria L'Albero Dei Gelati and Crown Heights jewelry maker Barbara Campbell Accessories — are certified by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce as “Brooklyn-Made,” a designation the organization has approved for dozens of Brooklyn businesses since the summer, said chamber president Carlo Scissura.
“With people doing last-minute shopping, like myself, we just felt the weekend before Christmas was just perfect for showcasing Brooklyn products,” he said.
The products are certified in bronze, silver or gold depending on how much of the businesses’ sourcing and manufacturing is done within the borough, how many of its employees work there and how long the business has called it home.
The Brooklyn-Made market will be open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Dec. 20 and Dec. 21. For more information, visit the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce website.
